    "My favorite color is blue, what size should I wear?" Bruh, l'm not one to snap on people on a forum but you're so low effort I hope someone negative reps you to prevent you from buying on these forums. Your laziness aside, which ACG bottoms? The wide legged ones or the skinny ones? The ones without stretch or with? The pants are gigantic and there is a small exchange, I don't know, ~4–5 pages back about this. Basically, you're sizing super/ultra wide Acronym pants on your height. Some people are 6'5"/196cm+ wearing small pants sizes for waist fit and they'll prolly need size L P23/P30 for height and normative fit. If you're intending to buy $1600+ pants and deprive more deserving community members of these pantaloons, at least go back a few pages. Finally, I'm going to assume you're a hypebeast manlet so you should go XS.

    For context, I've owned a J1A-S and J1TS-S but not a 2.0 J1A-GT. The GT shell I'm using currently is a J47-GT and I picked up a 2.2 J1A-GT as a possible replacement for it. Some initial thoughts on the 2.2: I love the collar. It looks and feels great up or down. I felt the previous iterations with the 3D collar ridge never sat right on my neck and felt awkward. I like the hood better than the previous generation's ones. Combined with the collars I thought they had too much going on visually. I appreciate this version's simplicity. Unfortunately I have a big head so the hood fits a bit smaller than I'd like so I've removed it and auxzipped my J63A in because I love its hood. The flak pocket is okay but I don't think I'll use it much personally. I feel like zipping the zipper from left to right should open the pocket instead of closing it. With how it is currently the zipper head blocks a bit of the opening on the left whereas if it was all the way on the right it'd be out of the way. I loved the centre pockets of the J1A-S and used them almost exclusively. You had the flak pocket quickly and easily accessible with the top flap, a sort of mezzanine pocket behind that accessed from the side and also another zipped security pocket behind that. I get that the security pocket probably had to go for the liner access to work nicely but can't help but wish there was still a mezzanine pocket behind the flak pocket. Edit: mezzanine pocket still present, thanks for pointing it out @RodG! I like the new gravity pockets. They feel easier to insert and remove items from. I don't use them as intended with the wrist flick so I can't speak on that aspect but just as extra pockets I feel like they've improved. They sit more towards the back of your arms now instead of the side. I still dislike the sleeve pocket. I get that it's a defining feature of the J1 but I've always found it cumbersome to use. I would've preferred the stacked detached sleeve pockets from the J16/J1TS on both sides but that's just me dreaming of my ideal ACR jacket. I'm glad to have the articulated speedlock hem back in my life. Been missing it since I sold my J27. I think it's the best looking integration of speedlock. I prefer jackets without interops because I don't often carry an additional bag, you lose the symmetry of having speedlock tabs on both sides and you sacrifice some backwards capacity if you have 2-directional waist pockets. This isn't so much of an issue for me with the J1A because I feel that asymmetry is intrinsic in its design and it's not lacking in the storage department. Some small tweaks I'd make have to do with fastening the jacket. The centre snap is positioned nicely but I wish it was on webbing like the top snap so it'd be easier to grab at both sides with my index finger and thumb instead of having to get at it through just the right side with my thumb. Also I wish the two main zippers were detached at the bottom on both sides instead of one each for less fiddling around. I like how they're done like that on my J62-PB. When it comes to Acronym jackets I prefer the simpler cuts with all the features I need/want. I go for my personal minimum maximum, if you will. I prefer my J47-GT over the J47A and J47TS I owned. I found their extra pockets surplus to my needs and unnatural to use. I value pocket capacity and accessibility over quantity. It's why the J28 isn't for me while most froth over it. It's why the J62 is fantastic to me despite only having 2 pockets. It's why the J16 is one of, if not my favourite jacket. Pretty much the entire front of it is storage space and all of it feels right to use. I feel like the 2.2 J1A-GT hits a sweet spot for me and overall I like the jacket a lot. It's not perfect but it's very good for me functionally and aesthetically. YMMV.

    How about we collectively agree not to post any more J1A-GT WTBs until after the next restock. Or ever.

    So, I’ve been wearing the latest drop of P10-DS hard. Like really hard. Almost daily since I bought them at the end of last summer. Looking at a close to six months of daily. I’ve worn them in a busy professional kitchen environment. I’ve worn them in the rain and snow and in-between. I’ve hiked in them, and drunkenly explored urban confines in them. I’ve crawled around in weird places in them. I’ve sat in my couch for hours in them playing the vid games. I’m pretty convinced that this iteration of DS is one of the best materials out there for a pair of pants. They are light and move with you/stretch, are ultra comfy and luxe feeling -but at the same time don’t feel flimsy, inconsequential or cheap/synthetic like some 4 way stretch material. I’ve been highly surprised by the durability- not found a single instance of fraying, abrasion or pilling. My S15-DS has minor pilling where my arms naturally brush against my trunk area. None of that on these. There’s been times when I’ve had an oh fuck moment where I thought they snagged in something or some shit but turned out to be nothing. Whereas it would’ve been an issue with other shit I’ve worn(presumably). The stain resistance, wind resistance and water beading is great. My only minor gripe is that they do tend to hold odors a bit more than the S or CH versions I own. I may notice that more so based on wearing them in a kitchen environment where some food smells are highly exaggerated both due to strength and frequency(I’ve worn the S and CH versions in the same environment without this issue or at least not to the same degree). If they ever release an iteration of the SS-J25 in this material I’ll happily wade through a sea of razor blade brimmed MAGA snap back wearing aerosolized Ebola spewing yeezy clad mumble rappers festooned in Siberian razor wire coated with Supreme replicating nanites just to get that shit. And I’m not just saying all of this because they costed many of the dollaroos. Shit is güd fam.

    Did you not just sell a J1A-GT for $2500 on Grailed when people can buy them for retail when they restock in a month? Not hating, you gotta do what you gotta do...but calling out someone when you're doing the same thing? https://www.grailed.com/listings/8463595-acronym-j1a-gt-2-2?

    So we've had a bit of spring here. Lots of beautiful walks in the park. And the final, misty photo, is of my new walk to work. This is an event of seismic important in my life - no denim 9-5, for the first time ever. I fancied a change, after a decade writing books I've signed up for a proper job and am retraining as a high school physics teacher. Which feels fantastic... apart from the denim aspect, although with advancing years wearing a suit ain't a bad thing. So this is my last summer of denim, and to celebrate the first sunny weather, I washed the '20s. They're not as blue as in the pics. I can see real leg twist coming in now.

    I kinda do not understand what is wrong with the chinese manufacturing. Yes chinese production is notorious for plenty of fakes, but since there were fakes before the new MADEINPRC stuff, this cannot be the issue. -chinese factories are better equipped and more up to date / you will need to import chinese made machines to EU, pay freight+tax for your own factory -it's naive to think that czech seamstress working at Acronym earns enough for anyone here to live more then week -the employment rate at czech republic is very low (YEAH!), Šumperk has 27000 inhabitants, the change of the address from next-to-tilak to different place seems like tilak is no longer part of the production. You need highly skilled employees to operate the sewing machines, seamsealers and. How many people do you expect to be able to find in such a small town? (yes acrnm has probably enough to CZK to pay way more then Tilak, but that would not be very friendly) Just sit back and enjoy the fact that you are actually able to buy the stuff because there will be higher quantities.

    My only issue with the change in manufacturing is this: Espousing a political view of responsible capitalism via retweet AND employing a contract factory in a country with a bad record of regulating environmental impact and labor conditions while having clothing made of materials with high pollution risk in an industry notorious for labor exploitation. Some assurances would be good so I can retain rose-colored perceptions.

    There is no excuse that this info should come out via a customer picture and a LOL Instagram comment posted after the jacket is sold out. I'm disappointed in errolson's ethics

    Update on my Rainbow Okis. I’ve worn them sparingly but still a fav! Homemade repair still holding its own, leather not so much.

    FYI, best way to identify when produced is to have a look at metal parts. ^very first parts (1995-1998). The button is made of zinc, and rivets are copper. ^1998-2001. The button is made of iron, and note that the rivet says "K.K." instead of "O.K.". ^2002- button is iron, and rivets are iron with copper plating. Button is white-ish rather than silver. The label with big W is for Warehouse Osaka store in 1997 (not very sure), but also produced for the sample-sale jeans and lucky-bag jeans. Recently warehouse produces sample jeans with old labels and variety of texture, but old metal parts are not used, afaik. Hope this helps
